Flooding chaos at hospital
The north’s biggest hospital was thrown into chaos yesterday after a basement flood led to its computer system being shut down.
About 30 operations and up to 60 other procedures were cancelled at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness – and further disruption was expected today.
A large build-up of rain water on a flat roof on Sunday night and Monday morning led to a leak into a basement room where many of the hospital’s computer servers were located. The servers were switched off for electrical safety reasons.
